We were assigned by Martha, a guide, to pull invasive plants called Privet out of Chattanooga's native plant environment.
Later, our camp took a tour of the establishment, viewing animals like Red Wolves, Owls, and Cranes.
Our second stop was called Greenspace.
We helped to build a rectangular base on wheels to put a frame on display, and we learned about natural energy sources.
Our theme today was Biodiversity, and these two stops enriched our knowledge on this subject.
These points conclude camp Tikkun Olam's Thursday field trip!
